A GUI on the Radar Pulse Compression Technique
Contemporary day communication systems relies on coding techniques for the intent of designing an efficient and reliable transmission system. Pulse compression is one such well-known coding technique being used in variety of applications, including the modern radio communication systems like radar and sonar, where propagation of radio wave or field through non-conducting medium such as air or space is involved.
Here, an attempt is made to demonstrate the usefulness of this technique in the context of atmospheric radars. Making use of the computational and visualization features of MATLAB and LabVIEW packages, a flexible front-end Graphic-user-interface (GUI) is designed and developed to demonstrate the functionality of this technique in ARIES ST Radar operating at 206.5 MHz. More details on this GUI can be checked at: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s42452-019-1737-0.
The user-friendly and easily customized GUI will benefit the larger user community in saving their time in writing their programs and/or constructing any hardware assemblies to test the performance of pulse compression technique during early design phases.
